Omniture University Achieves Record Training and Certification Milestones in 2007
OREM, Utah – Dec. 20, 2007 — Omniture, Inc. (NASDAQ:OMTR), a leading provider of online business optimization software, today announced that Omniture University, which provides valuable education and training to customers, achieved record growth during 2007. Demand for the company’s regional, onsite and online training increased significantly with more than 5,000 individuals trained on solutions from Omniture’s online business optimization platform. Omniture now has global staff dedicated to training in the U.S., U.K, Denmark, Germany and Japan, and plans to expand to other countries in 2008.
“Omniture University training goes way beyond Web Analytics 101,” said Stephane Hamel, a Canada-based Web analytics consultant and thought leader that recently attended Omniture University training in Montreal. “People who attended left the training armed with specific skills they could implement right away—from quick wins to longer-term, strategic areas that will lead to new revenue opportunities for their company.”
During 2007, Omniture introduced the industry’s first certification program—the Omniture Certified Professional, a designation that attests to a professional’s skills, knowledge and abilities with implementing, using and improving business success using Omniture products. To make certification testing and Omniture University training even more accessible, Omniture introduced a new online registration system allowing Omniture courses and certification testing to be administered in local geographies at 270 locations across 18 countries.
“Omniture offers one of the most in-depth and flexible programs for online marketers and Web analysts to increase their skills for measuring and improving the results of their online marketing,” said Steve Wellen, vice president of client services, Omniture. “As advertising dollars continue to move online and social media plays a bigger role in customer engagement, we are seeing an increase in demand for Omniture solutions and with that, an increase in demand for Omniture University-trained individuals and Omniture Certified Professionals.”
